Have you ever had a bouquet so pretty that you hated to see it go? We all have. One of the seductions of fresh flowers is that their presence is fleeting. Fresh-cut blooms are to be momentarily possessed, experienced and then sadly discarded. It is a kind of luxury.
But what if you didn’t have to part with a particularly sentimental bouquet? Paper florist and artist Quynh Nguyen has a very precise talent for replicating flora with reams of crepe paper. Her work has been displayed in store windows, at weddings and in restaurants. Brides who are keen to keep their bouquets beyond their wedding day would be wise to contact her business, Pink & Posey.
We spoke with Quynh about the extreme precision and delicacy of her work, how she got started and how we can too (although our results might more closely mimic those sad tissue flowers of our youth). Turns out she teaches workshops!

Introducing Fiori Floral Design, now located inside our downtown Seattle flagship store. For the home, office, weddings or any occasion, innovative arrangements and flowers are a perfect dose of pretty to add to your fashion fix.
A Seattle-born company—and one of its most renowned florists—Fiori offers our customers individual arrangements for the home, office and gifts as well as floral services for weddings and other special occasions. Delivery is available from Seattle to almost anywhere in the world via their membership with an invitation-only network of fine florists.
Using only premium flowers, Fiori Floral Design specializes in a European style of design known as pavé—a method in which little filler is used and the flowers are tucked closely together so they remain the focus.
If you’re in the Seattle area, we invite you to visit the Fiori Floral Design boutique located at our downtown Seattle store within the entrance at Pine and 6th Avenue, or, for more information and deliveries, call 206.628.1910.
